Legend of Shu

For this achievement, you have to complete both the hypothetical and the historical paths of the Story Mode for the Shu kingdom. To access the hypothetical route, you must achieve the secondary objectives in several different scenarios up to a certain point. The certain point for Shu is the ninth stage, Battle of Fan Castle. Any later scenarios after that aren't necessary, but provide alternative reasons to attain them.

Stage 1: Yellow Turban Rebellion
Optional Objective(s): Assist/protect the peasants.
Details: There are a group of peasants located within the middle of the battleground. The area is only accessible from the front, and there are three peasant groups within. After planning to split and take the western/eastern sides, the peasants will appear. Head in and simply deal with the solitary officer to complete the secondary objective.

Stage 3: Defense of Xu Province
Optional Objective(s): Allow the troops to flee, defeat the troops before they flee.
Details: Once you deal with Zhang Liao, Xu Huang, and the catapults (successfully, hopefully), a messenger will read out orders from Guo Jia for the remaining troops to withdraw. Here will be the defining moment, as you will end up having to play this stage twice due to the objectives: play as Liu Bei and take care of Xu Huang up north, then sweep by and deal with Zhang Liao. If everything went smoothly, Zhang Fei will have dealt with the catapults, protecting your defensive stance on the castle. The troops to the south and southwest, reinforcements brought in over the course of the mission, will start to flee. Either let them flee to unlock (3-X: Disturbance at Guandu) or rush to their escape point (southwestern point leading west from the battlefield) and deal with them personally. Just make sure you save the targets until they start fleeing.

Stage 6: Battle of Chibi
Optional Objective(s): Meet with Xu Shu after the fire attack.
Details: Proceed through the mission as normal. Eventually, you'll be required to breach the fleet to rescue Pang Tong and ensure the fire plan to succeed. This will be the first instance you'll brush against Xu Shu, crossing weapons against one another. After the fire plan succeeds and you scare Cao Cao into fleeing, Liu Bei will comment on concern for Xu Shu and his current whereabouts, having him spawn on a northern boat. Approach him to have a conversation (bonus conversation if you're playing as Zhuge Liang) and he will withdraw.

Stage 7: Battle of Chengdu
Optional Objective(s): Protect Pang Tong from being injured/killed.
Details: Best to play as Pang Tong for this mission. He will suggest taking Luo Castle, and the minimap will suggest going around the eastern-most path. Avoid that at first and simply go into the eastern pass to capture the garrison there, Mianzhu. Once there, you should see a ladder leading up to a small platform that would eventually lead back onto the far eastern pass. Climbing up there and letting everyone finish their chatter will reveal Zhang Ren, the meddling officer that would've screwed this objective over for you. Defeat him to ensure your success with the secondary objectives on this map.

Stage 8: Battle of Mt. Dingjun
Optional Objective(s): Defeat Cao Xiu.
Details: Once you've captured the two bases at the bottom of the mountain (as per required in the mission), you will be told to proceed up the western side of the map. Eventually, Cao Xiu will appear at the northwestern-most point of the map offering reinforcements for Xiahou Yuan. He will then proceed, at a rapid pace, to descend the mountain to try and assail the main camp.

Once all of these secondary objectives are met, Xu Shu will appear at the intermission camp for Stage 9: Battle of Fan Castle, allowing you to take the Hypothetical route for Shu. Any other secondary objectives are merely to help unlock additional content (voice pieces, event information, etc.) so you may still wish to complete them as you come across them.
